Helping Lincoln Park families live as long as the rest of Duluth

@Lincoln Park Farmers Market

When the Lincoln Park Farmers Market started up six years ago, it wasn't just so folks could buy some flowers and a little fresh fruit for breakfast.

A survey had just been conducted that showed people in the Lincoln Park neighborhood weren't living as long as everyone else in the community.  In fact, no access to healthy food, due to transportation problems and the distance to the nearest grocery stores, was shaving about ten years off their life expectancies.

Products from the winter greenhouse and more can be found at the Winter Farmers Market, which opens November 1 and runs the first and third Thursdays of every month through mid-March.  The Lincoln Park Farmers Market is located at the Harrison Community Center.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
